Winter pays no attention to the calender apparently. We had our first good snow of the year the other day and its snowing now. It is exciting to see it again. The kids are having a great time playing in it with their friend in the neighborhood. Everything else is going well. I finished my comprehensive exams. I have already heard back and I passed all of them. All is well with Wycliffe too; we are going to be in Orlando from Jan. 17-31 for our initial training. We are also looking forward to being home (in Spartanburg) for a little while before we go. There was a commissioning service at school today for all the people graduating this semester . There are 16 of us if you count the TESOL people too. As you can see from the picture we have also put up our little Christmas tree. Silas is very interested in the ornaments. I hope the new wears off soon.
